Erasmus+ has selected 40 new Erasmus Mundus joint master degree programmes that will offer scholarships to students from across the world. These newly-selected programmes will be added to the list of Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees later during the summer 2020, making a total of around 120 available programmes.

Erasmus+ has invested over €160 million in these new programmes, most of which money goes to pay for 6,490 scholarships for students from all over the world to attend these two-year master programmes.

What makes these programmes so special is that they are joint programmes. They blend the best teaching from different universities, often combining different faculties and disciplines. Students study in two or more of these different partner universities over the two years.

Together these 40 programmes include 203 higher education institutions which offer modules of the programme, and a further 782 associate partners whose role might be to offer placements, additional specialist teaching, research opportunities, or who promote the programme worldwide. Together these represent 30 Programme Countries from Europe and 90 Partner Countries from other parts of the world.

It is now sixteen years since the first Erasmus Mundus joint masters programmes were selected. Since then, almost 28,000 students from 182 countries have won scholarships to study in 526 programmes.
